    This week for WildStar Wednesday we get a message from the Gaffer himself - letting us stuck on the outside of the beta how things are going. We discover what the devs are doing with the feedback, and have our first glimpse at the Stormtalon's Lair dungeon that we learn Arkship EU participants will be free to talk about!

    So they already have thousands testing? That's awesome for just a week in. I hope they ramp it up though I'm itching to get some good feedback in.

    Lots of good info on Carbine's beta process here. The kill tracking on the various mobs is pretty neat, reminds me of that one fact I heard about WoW where apparently the Defias Pillager in Westfall is the mob type with the highest number of player kills in the game.

    Good read. At least they are giving us info about what's happening in the beta. They wouldn't have to... if they let us in. *Hint, hint*

    But seriously... thanks for the update, and I'll be looking forward to next week. Class reveals, mehbeh?!? Nah... probably not. Lol.

    Sounds really cool. I had a good laugh when they tried to hide Poptart's Identity haha.

    Looking forward to hearing about the dungeon experiences. Good luck with the process of sifting through all of the beta data points, sounds like a crazy amount of things to go through.

    Also pretty neat that folks are already working on add-ons. That's great to see. :)

    Yeah, the part with pop-tart was brilliant. I laughed when they mentioned the guy trying to make a killing off of the flight point bug too. I'm really glad they're tracking all the stats, reminded me of the Defias Pillagers as well.

    That giant "thing" in the background looks like a large egg hanging upside down in an incubator. I wonder what it is... it seems like a focal point. Maybe it spits out a nasty boss... and the dungeon is called Stormtalon... I wonder why?

    "Or I guess if you're Notch you do both ;) "

    Ice cold.
    +1 for Carbine for calling that out. I still haven't shook off my fears of Wildstar being yet another 'revolutionary?!?' MMO that turns out to be WoW with another feature added in. Hopefully with more info rolling out those fears will dissipate.

    I WANT TO BELIEVE. But I've been hurt by other mmos so much I just...don't know if I can open my heart again...</3

    They said this in Wildstar Wednesday...

    "We won't promise perfection. One player actually found that some taxi drivers in a fit of generosity would give you money for flying to your destination instead of taking it and spent four hours riding back and forth. We left him with 50 copper of the 14 gold he farmed as thanks for making us laugh."

    That just CRACKS me up. 4 hours, Thanks for the exploit....here's 50 copper...

    Carbine team, you guys are hysterical!!! :)

    YOU MUST BELIEVE!

    But seriously, I'm the same. I would prefer to be angry than disappointed. Hard to resist though!

    Sure there were some things that people already knew but overall it's great seeing Carbine's personality and the sneak peak at Stormtalon is cool. Plus there are plenty more Wednesdays coming up.

    A WSW worth waiting for. Sounds like they are having a ton of fun and being productive at the same time. XD

    Yeah when I read that I was literally cracking up. Seriously, there was no need for him to farm so much - should've just noticed it and reported it instead of trying to abuse it so much.

    Curious to hear from the EU Arkship about Stormtalon.

    Hope it's nothing like Black Talon... .....
